It's easier to see yourself as you really are when you look at yourself through someone else's eyes.  Right now, there is a teenage boy from another country upstairs, sleeping.  We are waiting for him to wake up and come downstairs so we can go out for pizza.  What will he find when he comes downstairs?  A hip young couple being hip?  No, he'll find a middle-age guy taking measurements for cabinets, and me sitting on the couch reading about the history of wildfires in America.  We are not hip or trendy.  We may not be cool to anyone else, but at least we think each other is pretty cool.  And we're happy.  We're just a couple of cool, middle-age, average, cats.
